The Universal Exercise Unit (UEU) (also known as the Spider Cage) is a wonderful support for child rehab, pediatric physiotherapy, neuro physio, and more. This physiotherapy tool resembles a cage and incorporates the use of pulleys, weights, and bungee cords to help improve a child’s strength, flexibility, and range of motion.
The UEU allows the therapist to isolate and strengthen specific muscles to help improve function. By incorporating the use of bungees, it allows the therapist to suspend a child and allow the child to perform activities in both partial and full weight-bearing.
At All About Kids, we incorporate the UEU in our TheraSuit® Method Intensive Program, which you can read all about here.
